5enses is Greater Prescott’s premiere monthly publication for art and science.
5enses is free and available at more than 300 locations including area coffee shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, college and university campuses, newspaper boxes, and at similarly high-traffic locations. We print 5,000 copies the first weekend of every month. Given the print industry standard passalong rate (2.5), that’s 12,500 readers per issue.
We are locally and independently owned, compensate every contributor, and are entirely funded through advertisements.
5enses sponsors and supports community events like Chalk It Up! and The Prescott Film Festival. Nonprofits enjoy a 15 percent discount. Community calendar listings are always free. Leftover print materials are donated to the Prescott Noon Lions Club’s Paper Recycling Project.
